DTP( Desktop Publication)
- DTP( Desktop Publication):-Desktop publishing (DTP) is the creation of documents using page layout software on a personal (“desktop”) computer. It was first used almost exclusively for print publications, but now it also assists in the creation of various forms of online content. Desktop publishing software can generate layouts and produce typographic-quality text and images comparable to traditional typography and printing. Desktop publishing is also the main reference for digital typography. This technology allows individuals, businesses, and other organizations to self-publish a wide variety of content, from menus to magazines to books, without the expense of commercial printing.
Photoshop:-Adobe Photoshop is
a raster graphics editor developed and published by Adobe Inc. for Windows and macOS. It
was originally created in 1988 by Thomas and John Knoll. Since then, this software has become the industry standard
not only in raster graphics editing, but in digital art as a whole. The software’s name has thus become a generic trademark, leading to its usage as a verb (e.g. “to photoshop an
image”, “photoshopping“, and “photoshop contest“) although Adobe discourages such use. Photoshop
can edit and compose raster images in multiple layers and supports masks, alpha compositing, and several color models including RGB, CMYK, CIELAB, spot color, and duotone.
Photoshop uses its own
PSB file formats to support these features. In addition to
raster graphics, this software has limited abilities to edit or render text
and vector graphics (especially through clipping path for the latter), as well as 3D graphics and video. Its feature set can be expanded by plug-ins; programs developed and distributed independently of
Photoshop that run inside it and offer new or enhanced features.
- Page-Maker:-Adobe PageMaker (formerly Aldus PageMaker) is a discontinued desktop publishing computer program introduced in 1985 by Aldus on the Apple Macintosh. The combination of PageMaker using the Mac’s graphical user interface for document creation and the Apple LaserWriter for output represented the starting point of what became the desktop publishing revolution in the late 1980s. Ported to PCs running Windows 1.0 in 1987, PageMaker helped to popularize the Macintosh platform and the Windows environment.
A key component that led to PageMaker’s success was its native support for Adobe Systems‘ PostScript page description language. After Adobe purchased the majority of Aldus’ assets (including FreeHand, PressWise, PageMaker etc.) in 1994 and subsequently phased out the Aldus name, version 6 was released. The program remained a major force in the high-end DTP market through the early 1990s, but new features were slow in coming. By the mid-1990s, it faced increasing competition from QuarkXPress on the Mac, and to a lesser degree, Ventura on the PC, and by the end of the decade it was no longer a major force. Quark proposed buying the product and cancelling it, but instead, in 1999 Adobe released their “Quark Killer”, Adobe InDesign. The last major release of PageMaker came in 2001, and customers were offered InDesign licenses at a lower cost.
- Corel Draw:-CorelDraw (styled CorelDRAW) is a vector graphics editor developed and marketed by Corel Corporation.
